2014 State of State Courts Poll Results

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) recently published the results from its comprehensive public opinion survey of 1,000 registered voters. The survey was conducted by telephone November 12 – 16, 2014.

Key findings of the survey include:

  • Courts remain the most trusted branch of government;
  • Court users express confidence in fairness of proceedings, but have doubts about customer service and job performance;
  • There is a strong demand for greater availability of online services; and,
  • The public worries that politics undermines the impartiality of the court system

A summary of poll results provided by the firm, GBA Strategies, and the presentation are available for viewing.
